Default Inner tub rubs against the tub lid
Model Number: A419   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I bought and replaced the stem and seal on this washer because it was leaking. That problem is solved. But, after putting the washer back together the inner tub is rubbing against the tub lid. This is stopping and/or slowing the inner tub from spinning. It almost seems as if though the inner tub is sitting up too high but I can't figure out why or how to get it to sit correctly. I would have thought that I put it back together exactly the way it was before I took it apart. So.....need help!!!!

Did you make sure the tub cover seal was in place before re-installing it? Did you remove the set screw from the stem before screwing it down and tightening with spanner wrench? Was there any problem with screwing on the stem? Hope you didn't get it cross-threaded.

Hey Eric, thanks for responding!

The tub cover seal was in place and I made sure it wasn't twisted. I did remove the set screw and everything went into place without any problems. In fact, when it didn't work correctly I took it all back apart then put it back together again. Both times I had no problems.
After reading some of the other posts, I noticed some suggestions on how to center the tub. Is it possible that is my problem? I watched a few videos on how to do this job and none of them said anything about centering the tub.

Did you install a new tub bearing in the outer tub when you did the stem and seal? You do have to make sure the basket is centered before tightening down the spanner nut. This may be the problem.

Well.....unfortunately I did not change the tub bearing. I take it I was supposed to change that as well. If so, I am quite frustrated. I bought the replacement parts from Maytag. If it is well known that the tub bearing has to be replaced with the stem and seal.... they should know that and should have told me that when I ordered the parts.

I took the stem and seal and inner tub back out of the washer. I let the washer run the spin cycle and it had quite a wobble without anything attached.

So, does that mean if I replace the tub bearing that would solve that problem?

What is the exact model number of your washer. The A419 is not coming up in my searches. Need serial number as well.
